Sheffield WUN Governance
Professor Sir Keith Burnett, Vice-Chancellor, The University of Sheffield
The Partnership Board sets the strategic direction and vision of the network and its culture, values and membership. It provides entrepreneurial leadership of the WUN company within a framework of prudent and effective controls that enables risk to be assessed and managed.
The Board comprises the Presidents, Vice-Chancellors or Rectors of the member universities and the WUN Executive Director. Collectively, the Board has considerable international influence and ensures that WUN is recognised as a leading global higher education network.
Academic Advisory Board
Professor Dave Petley, Vice-President for Research and Innovation
The Academic Advisory Group is responsible for overseeing the academic portfolio of the network and advising the Partnership Board on strategic direction. It is made up senior university officials, usually at the level of Vice-President or Deputy Vice-Chancellor with responsibility for the research or internationalisation priorities of the member universities. It is the task of this group to draw the threads from individual member universities together so as to nurture high impact communities tackling issues of global importance.
Ms Danielle Bertrand, International Partnerships Officer and WUN Coordiator
Each WUN member university appoints an administrator to manage the implementation of WUN programs on campus and to serve as the main contact point for network initiatives. This group shares information on collaborative opportunities and develops WUN’s research programs. Your local WUN Coordinator should be your first point of contact for information on WUN. Contact details for your WUN Coordinator can be found on the WUN member pages.
WUN Steering Committee
The WUN Steering Committee at Sheffield provides strategic direction for our WUN engagement in order to exploit WUN opportunities and maximise its benefit to Sheffield's research and innovation, internationalisation and learning and teaching.
